I tripled your fried vegetable dumplings recipe for hors d'oevuers to serve 12 and cooked them 2 hrs. ahead of our guests' arrival as you advised. Not a dumpling was left. I have cooked them for family to be eaten immediately and they were even better that way. I tripled the spicy sweet and sour garlic shrimp for the entree and stir fried it while our guest were here. They loved it. We also followed your advice to have fun so, as I feared,we forgot to take pictures.
